Callaway (thumb) participated in June minicamp, the Saints' official website reports.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway had thumb surgery early in the offseason, but there weren't any reports of limitations at spring practices. His bigger concern for this year is a beefed-up WR room that now has Jarvis Landry and first-round pick Chris Olave joining Callaway, Michael Thomas (ankle), Deonte Harty and Tre'Quan Smith. There's still some opportunity for Callaway to earn a top-three spot on the depth chart -- especially if Thomas isn't ready for Week 1 -- but the 24-year-old Callaway could just as easily drop to the No. 4/5 role after starting 11 games last season.

Callaway had offseason surgery on his thumb, Nader Mirfiq of Rare Media Live reports.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway has plenty of time to recover before training camp, at which point he'll likely be in the mix for the Saints' second or third wideout spot. Michael Thomas is expected to come back as the far-and-away No. 1, with Callaway and Deonte Harris the current favorites to earn key roles behind Thomas among the team's holdovers from 2021. While he fell far short of the summer hype, Callaway did finish last season with a respectable 46-698-6 receiving line on 84 targets, making him the leading receiver for one of the league's worst passing attacks.

Callaway caught 46 of 84 targets for 698 yards and six touchdowns over 17 games in 2021.
EDGE Analysis
With Michael Thomas (ankle) on the shelf all season, Callaway consistently handled heavy snap counts for New Orleans both before and after Tre'Quan Smith made his season debut in Week 7. However, the 6-foot-2 receiver only ran a route on 53 percent of his snaps and he was only targeted on 19.5 percent of his routes - less than each of Deonte Harris, Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, Ty Montgomery and Adam Trautman. While Callaway still put together a couple of nice games this year, this underwhelming usage led to inconsistent stat lines that made him hard to trust in fantasy lineups. Unless the Saints get a dramatic upgrade at quarterback in the offseason, things could get worse for Callaway in 2022 with Thomas set to reprise his role as the team's undisputed top option at receiver.

Callaway caught six of 10 targets for 97 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Panthers.
EDGE Analysis
He very nearly topped 100 yards for the second time in the last three games, but Callaway had to content himself with being Taysom Hill's top option in the passing game. His developing chemistry with the QB -- Callaway has a 16-255-0 line on 24 targets over those three games -- bodes well for his chances of another big performance in Week 18 against the Falcons, as the Saints will be trying to claim a wild-card spot.

Callaway caught four of five targets for 46 yards during Monday's 20-3 loss to Miami.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway was the Saints' best source of offense in the first half, catching three balls for 42 yards despite the rest of the Ian Book-led offense doing next to nothing. However, he was unable to overcome extra defensive attention that ensued once Tre'Quan Smith (chest) was knocked out of the game. While Callaway would be cemented as New Orleans' No. 1 wideout if Smith can't play in Week 17 against Carolina, we now have proof that all Saints' skill players will have a dangerously low floor if Book is forced to make another start in place of Taysom Hill (COVID-19) and Trevor Siemian (COVID-19).

Callaway caught six of nine targets for 112 receiving yards in Sunday's 9-0 win over the Buccaneers.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway was the lone skill position player for either team to eclipse the century mark in what turned out to be a defensive showdown. The 23-year-old finally broke free for a big 40-yard leaping reception in the second half after the Saints offense dinked and dunked for the majority of the contest. This was Callaway's first 100-plus yard receiving game this season, and he totaled just 47 yards in his previous two games with Taysom Hill under center, so fantasy managers shouldn't overreact to this strong performance heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Dolphins.

Callaway caught two of four targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-9 win over the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway hasn't reached 40 receiving yards in a game since Week 5, and he's seen exactly four targets in each of the last five games. He'll be a touchdown-dependent, boom-or-bust option against the Buccaneers in Week 15, having found the end zone six times this season despite the modest target volume.

Callaway caught one of four passes for 13 yards during Thursday's 27-17 loss to Dallas.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway continues to command a large snap share and subsequently run a lot of routes, but the Tennessee product has topped five targets in only three games this year. This lowly workload has made him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, and things are unlikely to get better with the dual-threat Taysom Hill (finger) playing through a torn ligament in a finger on his throwing hand.

Callaway caught two of four targets for 24 yards during Thursday's 31-6 loss to the Bills.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway was targeted on both short and deep passes, but he was unable to find the end zone for the first time since Trevor Siemian took over at quarterback. Making matters worse was that Callaway was again held below six targets, three receptions and 37 receiving yards with Siemian under center. Unless the Saints make some sort of change at quarterback, Callaway will be hard to trust as anything more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy asset.

Callaway brought in one of four targets for a 26-yard touchdown in the Saints' 40-29 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
Callaway saved his fantasy day with his scoring grab, which came at the start of the fourth quarter and marked the Saints' first score since early in the second quarter. The second-year wideout hasn't topped 40 receiving yards since Week 5, but he's now recorded a touchdown reception in three consecutive contests. Callaway's next assignment is a tough one, considering New Orleans hosts the Bills for a Thanksgiving showdown in Week 12.
